I'm still alive and breathing...

Hi, all- A few of you have reached to me over the past month of so, and I humbly apologize for my lack of response. Between my wife and I getting COVID, and my father in law's hospice challenges, it's been rough.

I'm doing my best to catch up, and appreciate your patience.

Pete

The devil whispered in my ear
"you are not strong enough to withstand this storm."

Today I whispered in the devil's ear
"I AM the storm."

A friend shared that with me when I was undergoing chemo treatments. It became my motto and you are free to use it if you choose.

Good luck and God Bless.

No retreat, no reserve, no regrets.

A quote from an obscure man that's inspired me in the hard seasons of life.
All the best to you and your family.

What times we are living ( and otherwise). Glad you’re doing the living thing but so sorry for the hardship facing us in so many dimensions it seems. I sure hope we’re learning something from this.

Glad to see you are on the mend Pete. One person going through that crap is bad enough, both of you dealing with it must have been a serious challenge. If you need anything, ask.

Hi Peter:

That's quite a storm you and your family have weathered/are weathering. I hope your wife is hanging in there with her Dad in Hospice; that takes a terrible toll because it involves just waiting for the unavoidable end.

Do y'all have any lasting effects from your covid infections?

Warm Regards,
Mrs. Trombley

Pete, you have a lot on your plate. Small bites and chew slowly.

Best wishes, may everything go as you hope.

The good will always triumph! Of course I'm not necessarily an example of that, just something I've heard.......
